Anyhoo I have spent the day in bed getting up for a lovely deep hot bath and then went downstairs to the land of the living about 6pm and have had some cornflakes. I am convinced I am becoming more reactive to wheat so I am doing a conscious effort this week and next to be wheat free. I already avoid any bread for reasons of unpleasantness. It'll do me good to enjoy some salad and vegetables next week.
Plans for the 6 weeks do not really include going away on a holiday as we normally would. The HG has made whisperings of finally doing the wardrobes in our bedroom - however....we shall see! We will probable go stay in the NE at the Hotel of Miss (now) 26 and her beau. They are coming here at the end of July. I also must finish my first audio book though to be fair it is a long one. I've masks and head coverings and dog bags to sew. I want to finish my tumbler quilt. The HG bought me a beautiful dress pattern and the fabric to make it for my birthday - so I want to do that. Of course plenty of fussing and slaving after Madam B. Who, you'd think she's be stuck to me like glue being one of those faithful dogs who do not leave their sick owner's side. Nope!
I had a few but very treasured and precious cards, messages and gifts from parents and children but there are changes afoot to my role in September until Christmas. I'm having to dust of my TA cobwebs and drag my classroom practice back out of retirement. Two days are still devoted to Pastoral Mentoring but the other three days I will be in a class pod. There's been a few staffing changes BUT I am NOT planning on doing any teaching thank you very much. A change is as good as a rest and variety is the spic of life and all that etc. It's my own fault - I am too good at my job hahahaha
I have been fortunate to do some awesome training lead by an amazing Psychologist all about becoming Trauma Informed. I have learnt so much about the brain and every bit of training leads me to wanting to find out more. I was wondering and pondering about going to uni perhaps to study more - then gave my head a shake as I don't think my aged brain would hold the info enough! The trouble is at work betwixt you and I - there are a few people fully on board with nurture and being trauma informed and how positive affirmations can work and the rest who think it's all mumbo jumbo. I'm getting quite passionate about it and sometimes wonder about maybe taking my skills elsewhere!
OO I am a bit ranty today! We have been watching a TV show called Goliath on Amazon Prime which is crazy good. And now I am on the verge of an emotional breakdown watchingthe Kid's Voice - these kids getting me right in the feels. The one who collects whimzees - he is great!
Right I am away to try and add a photo of Nurse Flipping Bluebell and read around blogland!
